The Lucky 88 Look and Feel
The Lucky 88 online slot has a very strong Chinese theme to it. The dominant colour splashed across the screen is the typical Chinese red. The 5 reels are framed in gold and hold Chinese-like symbols throughout. There are some non-Chinese related symbol and they are the regular 9, 10, Jack Queen, King and Ace. The other symbols include a gold plated lion statue, a crane, a gold stone monument, a temple symbol, better known as the Temple of Heaven, and drum.
The sound effects are minimal but when they are in play they ring true to a familiar Chinese tune. Every winning combination that you land on will be recognised with an even more exciting Chinese influenced tune along with the string of firecrackers exploding along either side of the reels frame.
